A 39-year old man was taken into custody at his residence in Phare, Biarritz. He was accused of dealing with GBL. Gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) was an industrial solvent. This chemical is banned for sale and is considered a "harmful substances". Partygoers love its euphoric effects... It's not a drug, but something they enjoy.
Hence the vigilance of the police, especially since GBL, once in the body, metamorphoses into gammahydroxybutyrate, alias GHB, the date rape drug.
Two liters of product were found at the seller's home. He sold them at a rate of 10 cl per 10 euros. On October 28, 2022, the Bayonne court summons the man.
